Prayer for Courage for a Fearful Mom

by Karen

Hi there,

336x280:
I don't know how this happened, but ever since I became a mother, I have become so fearful of everything.
We will be going on vacation in a few months and going on an airplane. We had some turbulence on our last plane ride and now I am having major anxiety attacks whenever I think about riding a plane. I have ridden on airplanes dozens of times, I don't know why I feel so panicked. I really don't have a reason to. I feel horrible for not having more faith and trust in God. I want to be able to put complete faith and trust in Him, He has never let me down.
I am also so fearful of everything - I used to be so carefree and trusted God so well, I don't know what has happened to me. My heart starts beating rapidly and I feel like I want to throw up. I don't want to be like this anymore - I want to renew and refill my faith and trust in God.
Thanks

I totally get how you feel. Im in the exact same position as you.. im so fearful of everything and its really stressing me out. Im a mom of 2 and their classmates have been having birthday parties which they've been going and naturally they started asking for one. But i cant bring myself to organise one because they are so many fears and what ifs and things that can go wrong with the biggest being "what if no one shows up?" My husband thinks im nuts but i cant help it. Its been overwhelming me. I know its stupid and many people have bigger worries than this and yet here i am.. :( i cant get out of these negative thoughts. I feel im not giving my best to my children and that they will resent me for this in future.

And everytime they mention anything about birthdays i will get mad because it triggers this anxiety deep inside of me. I really hate myself

I can completely relate! 8 years ago a medication I was on caused me to have heart palpitations and I thought I was dying because it took forever for them to figure out the cause. To this day I still struggle with anxiety because of it. I also want so badly to just be carefree again and trust Him. It is so scary to feel that way! I have been lying here tonight trying to go to sleep and feeling so anxious and came across this website. Praying for peace and comfort for you.

I am a mother and I know how you feel. I live in fear for the sake of my children and my husband thinks I'm nuts half the time. I think it's a mom thing. GOD designed us this way most likely for protection of our kids. Don't get down on yourself. God knows you have faith and.love for him. Just pray and ask God for the intercession of our lady the blessed mother who understand fear more than anyone. She will help pray for God to give you peace. Good.luck and God bless

Praying for your faith to be restored in christ! Ask God to remove any doubt and fear from your heart, I pray the holy spirit comes into your soul and provides you comfort during this time! God Bless hold onto your faith and the Lords hand, he wont let you down.

False Entity Appears Real - FEAR

Through Jesus I can do all things, repeat this and know that fear is an error that can be overcome easily with Jesus! Every time you get scared repeat this over and over again, your building Faith and Trust.
